Connections: The Impact of Hairspray

The JCC is getting ready to launch their performance of "Hairspray" to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the race riots. We'll talk about inclusion on all levels -- and break down why the film became a cult classic despite a modest box office performance -- with Ralp Meranto of the JCC, Norma Holland from 13WHAM, and Andrea Holland from Holland Communications.

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
